Hello all my blog friends!
The Inspiration Crew is hopping along to inspire all you DIY crafters to get into the Valentine's Day mood.
I'm sharing a different way to share your love with others.
Cards are always popular on Valentine's Day but I wanted to switch it up a bit for my kids this year.
Just for them I made little paper fishes on a poll.
Inside of each fish holds a special love note for each of them.
Here's a quick little tutorial so you can make your own little love fishes.
Gather up your supplies.
You will need two circles, three hearts, a piece of string and a lollipop stick.
Wrap and tie one end of the sting to the end of the lollipop stick.
Adhere the hearts and circles.
First use double stick tape on one of the circles to adhere the string. Then add two of the hearts to the circle as shown with glue. Note that the fish's mouth (where the string is) will be adhere so that the top of the hearts are just sticking out a bit. This will be in opposite of the tail end where you adhere just at the tip of the heart.
Next add your little love note then top with the other circle. To adhere the two circles together I stitched around the edge but you could also use glue if you wish. To finish use the last heart and adhere the tip of the heart to the circle making a fin.
Product used: Pattern Paper from Authentique "Smitten" collection, Fibers from May Arts Ribbon "Burlap String"
I think my kids will really enjoy getting their love note in these cute fishes.
Now for more inspiration from my awesome crafting friends.
